Facials FAQ

Which Queen Bee facial should I choose for my first time?

We recommend our BeeSpoke Custom Facial. During this personalized facial, a Queen Bee Facialist will ascertain what your needs are and create a customized treatment. Please note: If you have a big event coming up and have never had a facial before, we don’t recommend getting one a day or two before the event. It would be rotten luck if you had a reaction to a product, so get your first facial two to three months before a special occasion, and if you’re considering a peel, come in for a consultation first.

I have breakouts and oily skin, will a facial help?

In a word, yes. For oily, breakout-prone skin, we use products that clean and slough off excess oil and dead skin cells. After cleansing and a light scrub, gentle extractions are performed. Following extractions, your aesthetician will choose an appropriate mask for your skin, then tone and moisturize with an oil-free moisturizer. We may also discuss your lifestyle and recommend certain changes to help combat excess oil and acne. If you don’t want to come in for a facial, order a pot of our oil and pimple blasting pads Buzz Off Bumps! We have seen dramatic results with the daily use of these custom exfoliating pads.

My teen has spots and picks their skin! What can I do to help them?

Hormonal changes combined with a poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, and other environmental factors can wreak havoc on adolescent skin. Lifestyle changes can go a long way to improve the skin, especially alongside regular facials. Before you consider antibiotics or prescription acne drugs, come in and let us look and see if we can help.

I’ve hit midlife and my skin is getting drier and more sensitive and I’m not down with the Wrinkles!

Skin ages prematurely due to many factors.  Overexposure to the sun, genetics, alcohol, tobacco, and stress can all take a toll on your skin’s elasticity and vibrancy. Menopause and losing testosterone can also affect how your skin behaves and appears.  We cannot promise you miracles after your first facial, but we can guarantee results with consistent care and adherence to our recommended routine. To combat the various signs of aging, we recommend a more complex and focused facial.

I have darker skin and I scar and hyperpigment very easily. I also have keloids from overly aggressive extractions. Should I not get facials?

You can absolutely still get facials. Experienced estheticians know that darker skin types are more prone to scarring and hyper-pigmentation, and at Queen Bee we know our limitations. You can receive gentle extractions, however, we will never force a blackhead out of your skin, and we will always use professional products to prepare and soften the skin before extractions. Brighten hyperpigmentation from picking with Queen Bee’s Buzz Off Bumps. They contain glycolic and salicylic acids which are super for brightening areas that have experienced hyperpigmentation from picking or shaving.

Do men get facials?

Yes, anybody can enjoy a facial and we see many blokes for this service. We can even perform a facial for people with a full beard and we recommend a great antibacterial wash to cleanse the skin/hair that gets trapped in that facial hair.

I would really love a good peel. What do you offer?

We have several professional peel options to choose from at Queen Bee. However, once in the room if your esthetician decides your skin is not a perfect fit for the peel you selected, they will advise you of other options.

Can I get a facial if I’m pregnant?

Absolutely and you deserve it! We provide a safe environment for our pregnant and nursing mothers. Beds are bolstered, and you’ll be propped in a very comfortable position for the duration of your facial. Chemical-free products are used at all times to ensure the safety of all of our clients. Please make sure you let the staff know you are pregnant at the time of making an appointment and, congratulations!

Is there ever a time when I can’t get a facial?

Yes, when you are sick or have a cold sore on your face. It is best to wait for those things to clear up.

We will NEVER up-sell you during your facial or force products on you afterward. If, during a facial, you would like to add-on or upgrade your service, please talk to your esthetician directly. Add-ons and upgrades include extra massage or more focus on extractions. If your questions have not been answered on this page please reach out to us and we would be delighted to help!
